Re: Did Ingo Bauer take a break from Chess

Hi, from times to times a break is good. So far computer chess is very boring ... to many Alpha zero news. One time per months is enough for reading that or other chess fora in my opinion. It would be better to added topics like alpha zero or stockfish in a subforum. So it's more easy to find the i...

Re: McCain - Two Menu Drop Downs Plus

Two new menu items that some folks may appreciate First ,we have a new drop menu for levels. For the levels shown, the computer type levels are labels, to fill in some gaps and to honor some of the pioneering chess computers and programs that were created in computer chess infancy. They were placed...

Re: Aquarium IDEA question.

It is virtually undocumented which is why fanboys have created videos. The software is also extremely buggy. If you don't mind supporting such bad behavior with money, go for it. The company will never get anymore of mine. As a computer programmer myself, calling the software a disgrace, is too kin...

New Houdini

Just wondering if anyone knows if there will be a new Houdini any time soon?

Re: 1.e4 c5 2.b3 ...?

Instead i am confronted with baseless preconceptions, like "Analyzing move 2 with engines is completely useless" No. Not "baseless preconceptions". Engine analysis on move two is so volatile and with such heavy swings of evaluation to make it unreliable for real opening preparation. Stockfish has a...
